    That’s no toupee, it’s the ultimate comb-over starting over the left ear. He’s got some top hair to work the comb-over. I think he should go to a military high and tight cut.... change his look.

    I thought that but a gust of wind caught him on the steps to Air Force One. That squirrel flapped high.

    Multiple simulated mock drafts for Texans do not match up well for 2019 OL draft class. Corner does. So either go that route or trade down to add more offensive line prospect that grade out value wise to shore up weakness. Maybe land a big free agent tackle that could be huge for next season.

    Which big board are you going by? I've seen Little in the top ten on several boards. As high as 6 I think on one.

    Well, nice haul. Not realistic in my humble view, but a nice simulation!

    Agreed usually Little is taken by Ravens, their biggest need as well, who just so happen to have pick before Texans.

    Kyler Murray declaring for the draft could have QB needy teams getting a little impatient and trading up to get a QB.....that's a good thing if it happens b/c with such a strong DL, WR and CB class, OL could get closer for the Texans to have some options.

    Those would not have been my OLine choices, .... but that group would be the greatest haul of talent this franchise has ever seen .... Great Job !!

    First Pick finally updated their site. I had the time yesterday to do a draft and took into consideration the possibility that Gaines and OB may not be putting such a high priority on LT since they may want to see how Davenport progresses in YR3. I also took into consideration that the Texans could go (2) strong FA's to address or bridge the situation at both the LT and CB positions.

    Your Picks:
    Round 2 Pick 01: (ARI): Risner, Dalton, OT, Kansas State (A) / 6-5 @ 308 lbs / Can play anywhere on the OL. Target RT.
    Round 2 Pick 22: David Montgomery, RB, Iowa State (A+) / 5-11 @ 219 lbs / Can handle every job required for RB. Day 1 starter.
    Round 2 Pick 23: Mullen, Trayvon, CB, Clemson (A+) / 6-2 @ 190 lbs / Big physical CB who can cover.
    Round 3 Pick 01 (ARI): Ridley, Riley, WR, Georgia (A) / 6-2 @ 200 lbs / Has the size, wheels and hands to be perfect fit with Watson. Just under used at Georgia.
    Round 3 Pick 22: McCoy, Erik, OC, Texas A&M (A+) / 6-4 @ 315 lbs / A OL with a mean streak who is smart and can play both C and G. This is a need on the Texans OL.
    Round 4 Pick 01 (ARI): Oliver, Josh, TE, San Jose State (A+) / 6-5 @ 250 lbs / A complete TE who does everything.
    Round 5 Pick 23: Johnson, Isaiah, CB, Houston (A+) / 6-2 @ 195 lbs / My sleeper pick if he falls. He's physical and fast.
    Round 6 Pick 22: Kaufusi, Corbin, DE, BYU (A+) / 6-9 @ 285 lbs / Coming off an injury but at this point in the draft he'd be well worth the pick. Could be an outstanding bookend to Watt.
    Round 7 Pick 23: Miller, Shareef, LB, Penn State (A+) / 6-5 @ 257 lbs / An OLB who is an edge setter. Texans would need to keep him focused on being good at this since it's one of the teams weakness' on defense.

    I'm going to give you an A on that draft, just for covering that many positions.

    Crazy, it only required 2 more picks in this draft. I could get 2 more picks a few different ways but the simulator offered up the right package.

    This go round I used the Fanspeak Draft Simulator. I'm counting on a couple of veterans in FA to help at LT and CB. There was a decent run on OL and CB's so I had to change my game plan. The good thing about the run, it pushed RB's and WR's down the list.

    023: R1P23 RB JOSH JACOBS ALABAMA

    053: R2P21 OT DALTON RISNER KANSAS STATE

    055: R2P23 WR DEEBO SAMUEL SOUTH CAROLINA

    086: R3P22 CB ISAIAH JOHNSON HOUSTON

    162: R5P23 OT MITCH HYATT CLEMSON

    197: R6P22 CB BLACE BROWN TROY

    222: R7P06 QB EASTON STICK NORTH DAKOTA STATE

    I was really surprised Hyatt and Brown slid this far down in this draft but I would consider both steals to get this late in the draft.

    The best OT's were off the board and I decided to go with the BPA in RD1 and it turned out to Josh Jacobs...I would hope he's worth the pick b/c he's certainly getting all the hype as being possibly the best RB in the draft. This would send Blue on his way. If Foreman is fully recovered, that could make Miller the 3rd down back he should've been from the get-go. Jacobs, Foreman and Miller could make an interesting trio of back for the Texans.

    It would be awesome if a Deebo Samuel would be there late in RD2 but if he was....that's a pick I couldn't get to the podium fast enough. He's got speed, excellent route running, and good hands...great bookend to Hopkins. Fuller would have to fight for his playing time.

    I can't say again how much I like Isaiah Johnson....he'd be an awesome pick in RD3, especially if he comes to the Texans along with Blace Brown. Both of these guys could really help the Texans backfield.

    Easton Stick would be another pick I'd be really happy with as a project QB. His showing at the East-West practices were underwhelming but I'd put little stock in how he performs on short notice with new personnel. NDS did win another Championship and he was their QB. Has a sound arm and is mobile and roughly the same size as Watson. I think he could be a perfect QB to groom as QB3 or on the PS for his 1st season. Hell, sign Weeden on the cheap and let him help with the grooming process of this young QB.

    I took a couple of trade downs as well on First Pick.

    1. Traded RD1-23 to San Francisco for RD2-04 / RD3-03 / RD4-02. Who wouldn't make this trade if offered?

    2. Traded RD3-23 to Arizona for RD4-01 / RD5-01 / RD6-01. Again, who wouldn't make this trade if it was offered?

    DRAFT

    Round 2 Pick 04 (SF): Dillard, Andre, OT, Washington State (A)
    Round 2 Pick 22: Mullen, Trayvon, CB, Clemson (A)
    Round 2 Pick 23: Jacobs, Josh, RB, Alabama (A)

    Round 3 Pick 03 (SF): McCoy, Erik, C, Texas A&M (A)

    Round 4 Pick 01 (ARI): Montgomery, David, RB, Iowa State (A+)
    Round 4 Pick 02 (SF): Oliver, Josh, TE, San Jose State (A+)

    Round 5 Pick 01 (ARI): Johnson, Isaiah, CB, Houston (A+)
    Round 5 Pick 23: Gustin, Porter, OLB, USC (A+)

    Round 6 Pick 01 (ARI): Granderson, Carl, DE, Wyoming (A+)
    Round 6 Pick 22: Evans, Bobby, OT, Oklahoma (A+)

    Round 7 Pick 23: Mims, Denzel, WR, Baylor (A+)

    That would be a crazy haul of talent while snapping up the two best RB's in the draft. Check out the write up on Mims.

    To make Trade number 1 close to even, the Texans would have to kick back their 3rd round pick (#86).

    To make Trade number 1 close to even, the Texans would receive Arizona's 4th, 5th, & 7th round picks.
